Our commitment for going green starts with solar panels
We have recently shown our care for environmental protection with an important project for better energy efficiency that allowed to significantly reduce fossil fuel consumption and emissions.
We have implemented the use of renewable energy sources a tour Lainate headquarters, which will lead to reducing CO2 emissions by 25% over the next year.
The main improvement at the site has been the installation of two photovoltaic systems, capable of providing 180 and 165 kWh, respectively. Solar energy is one of the most viable alternatives to fossil fuels and will reduce fuel consumption and emissions, while ensuring an amount of energy supply that can cover all the site needs when weather conditions are ideal.
Alongside the solar panel systems installed, we have decided to further reduce power consumption by installing 859 LED light systems, which will allow to save 107,760 kWh of energy each year. In addition, the installation of new heat pumps and the optimisation of the existing steam boiler will further reduce the use of external energy sources for our 65,000 m3 production site.
These energy-saving improvements will help to drastically reduce CO2 emissions, which are the main cause of the worrying rise in global temperatures. We foresee to reduce emissions by 25% next year and cut net TOE (tonnes of oil equivalent) consumption by 40% compared to current levels.

We support projects for the protection and health of women
A woman’s beauty isn’t just about her cosmetic beauty routine. It i salso about protecting women from abuse and violence and preserving women’s health. We work with non-profit organisations that help to improve the lives of women:
supported the Frecciarosa campaign by the Incontradonna non-profit organisation on the prevention of breast cancer (2015)
supported the “Blank page” campaign of the FareXBene non-profit organisation to build people’s awareness on the need to counter all forms of abuse and violence on women (2015)
We support education to kids and their families
Keeping skin healthy is something kids must learn to do from an early age.
We have developed and activated two educational projects in Italian schools that target adolescents and children and aims to teach them to take care of their own skin.
Piacersi a pelle (Being comfortable in one’s own skin): an innovative educational project for adolescents that centers on teaching proper sun exposure through classes held by ADOI dermatologists and a digital project that focuses on the kids’ self-confidence and their relationships with the others.
- 2 editions so far (2015 and 2016)
- 741 high schools involved
- 50 international schools involved
- 1,500 vocational schools involved
- 200,000 students involved
Skin Team: an educational entertainment project to teach how to properly wash and care for skin to kindergarten-age children. The next edition of the project will focus on prevention of sun-induced damage.
- 2 editions so far (2015 and 2016)
- 3,000 schools involved
- 6,000 classes involved
- 200,000 families involved coinvolte
